Subject Re: Problem with DeploymentContext

This should work with a read only systems such as a CD only computer or 
embedded system.  The trick is the deployment phase happens on a 
general purpose computer, and the output of that would be burned on the 
CD or flashed on the embedded system.  This is one of the big 
advantages of the two phase deployment of JSR-88.
